Wearers of the Green

The Dartmouth College Athletics "Wearers of the Green" program, sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations, honors Dartmouth alumni and students who have excelled in Ivy League athletics or as Olympians, All-Americas, World and National Champions, Members of Halls of Fame or Major League professionals.

The DWRC is proud to have produced many Wearers of the Green, including two two-year All Americans and two Captains of U.S. World Cup Squads!
